It's always nice to have a touch of color in the kitchen, especially if the rest of it is mostly monotone. Either way, we really like these neat looking small kitchen appliances by Hiroshi Ono. It will certainly set your kitchen apart from the usual brushed aluminum look.
These cute little appliances make some people smile. They are very visible, in their bright colors especially. Hiroshi Ono calls his design site Happy Design. His designs have smooth shapes, that almost have no edges. Needless to say that they stand out, no matter where they are put.
From the espresso machine to the electronic toaster, Ono's designs stand out. They are a mix of different influences that work well. These small kitchen appliances were designed for the Italian company Fratelli Guzzini, who's well known for their dishes and cutlery.
While some appliances, like the electronic toaster, have been on the market for a while, some of the others were just announced by Guzzini. You'll have to scour the web in order to find a place that has them, unless you're traveling to Europe and come across a Guzzini store. As they are Italian designer wares, they don't come cheap. The electronic toaster sells for approximately $185 in the UK.
